Texas will be receiving 332,750 vaccine doses starting January 25th according to a KXAN article from January 23rd. In it they say:
“In addition to the first doses, Texas is ordering 216,350 doses intended to be second doses for patients who’ve already been vaccinated. According to DSHS, the department automatically puts aside second doses based on the numbers of first doses they received: meaning people should be able to return to the same provider where they received their first dose.
Texas DSHS says over 1.37 million people have received their first dose and over 228,000 people have been fully vaccinated.
This week, there will be new hub locations, including in Burnet, Dallas, Gregg, Montgomery and Navarro counties. The total number of counties that have distributed vaccines is now 233 of 254.”
The Dallas City Council has called a meeting to discuss the allocation of its share of vaccine according to a Patch article from January 25th. In it they say:
“The Dallas City Council has called a special meeting for the evening of January 25, as the city prepares to receive more of the COVID-19 vaccine and open another hub distribution location later this week.”
Texas is making sure there’s enough for both initial inoculations and second doses.
